Pierre, a professional dancer, suffers from a serious heart disease. While he is waiting for a transplant which may (or may not) save his life, he has nothing better to do than look at the people around him, from the balcony of his Paris apartment.

Muy amena película con París de fondo. Excelentes actuaciones, un guión nada original, pero el color de las historias y lo cotidiano de las mismas, convierten este filme ligero en una mezcla de drama, comedia y romance, con un toque muy particular. Entretenida
Película agradable, tranquila. De esas que te platican varias historias a la vez, con un típico final que lo deja a la imaginación. Actuaciones sin complicaciones, si te gustan las historias con postales parisinos, esta es una buena.
Worth watching for the cast itself – Juliette Binoche (always great), Romain Duris, Mélanie Laurent and Fabrice Luchini (hilarious). A Criss-cross narrative punctuated by the good French-style writing. I like it.
Well-accomplished movie with an ever-intertwining story weaving the lives of a diverse cast of characters. And although most of the direct and indirect stories linkages are successful, I didn't understand the point of the African migrant's story since that one never resolved.
In any case, enveloping all the mini-stories is beautiful Paris and the ever-French Olympic sport of love and sex "à toutes les sauces"!
(3.5 stars) A charming film in the vein of those multi-narrative films like "Love Actually" and "Valentine's Day", etc. Set in and around Paris (of course), the narratives all loosely connect in some small way, although indirectly in most cases. All of the tales seem to revolve around love in some way: heartbreak, relationships, forbidden love and the constant search for love.
